The US government spent $450,000 trying to work out if dinosaurs could sing. Unsurprisingly, they couldn’t say for certain reasons. But it didn’t stop them wasting millions of taxpayers’ cash on seemingly daft ‘scientific’ investigations.
They gave $74million to the U.S Department of Agriculture (USDA) for federal farm loans to be repaid with actual pea- nuts, for farmers without the cash. To teach computers human behaviour, taxpayers also funded $460,000 for them to binge- watch 600 hours of Desperate Housewives.
The US national debt is $20trillion and is increasing by $14,103 per second. The government has to renew its borrow- ing in March 2017 and new president Donald Trump promised to reduce the nation’s debt by growing the economy and reducing waste in federal spending. Logically, he will then put an end to these unsuccessful experiences.
